    Hot Topics hosted two panels debating whether European entrepreneurs need to cross the Atlantic and the battle for the ‘home’ entertainment market.

Panel 1

Topic: Do European entrepreneurs need to cross the Atlantic?

With the European economy flat-lining and the region's IPO market in the doldrums, it can be tough to scale a European TMT start-up. Do ambitious entrepreneurs need to head to the U.S. to secure a large injection of cash or secure an attractive trade sale? Is it possible to achieve a lucrative exit without leaving Europe?

Panel 2

Topic: The battle for the 'home' entertainment market

As one of the few digital consumer markets where the ‘Gang of Four’ are not yet dominant, 2014 promises to be a pivotal year in the battle for the ‘home’ entertainment market as the lines between traditional television and video-on-demand become increasingly blurred. How much disruption will we see? Where are the investments going? Who’s under pressure?
